Passing Obamacare was theater and repealing is the reality show
By: Star Parker
Democrats who are calling the House’s decisively passed repeal of Obamacare theater are hallucinating.
Perhaps it was theatrical to include in the name of the repeal act “job killing,” though that is what it is.
But I prefer melodrama to dishonesty. Calling Obamacare — government mandates, subsidies, price controls, taxes and rationed care — the “Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care” act is the height of dishonesty.
The House repeal vote was important because the House is the legislative body closest to the people, and the people voted unequivocally last November to repudiate socialized medicine.
